I had a client bring this top to me which was a 9 foot butchering top but it had no base. So I built the client a shaker style farm table frame. The legs are 3.5" tapered. The client is going to finish the table themselves. This will be a great piece for a primitive lover. The top has the original knife marks on it and only 3 planks wide for what this piece was used for at one time. The client is totally happy with this piece.
